Jonathan Bernier earned his sixth consecutive win

by Callie Parmele / ColoradoAvalanche.com

It is not necessarily the number of saves a goaltender makes that can change the course of a game, but how the key saves change the momentum of the contest. 

Colorado Avalanche netminder Jonathan Bernier made a remarkable save in the second period on Monday afternoon with the paddle of his stick to deny Ryan Kesler's wrist shot in a 1-0 game, and Nathan MacKinnon took the puck the other way to score the game-winning goal just 12 seconds later.

by Ron Knabenbauer @RonKnab / ColoradoAvalanche.com

CENTENNIAL, Colo.--The Colorado Avalanche's stretch of playing 12-of-15 games at Pepsi Center is nearing its end, but there is still work to be done and opportunities available for the club to pick up more points in its friendly confines.

Bernier Shines In Dallas

The Avs netminder ties a career high with his fifth-straight victory, and Colorado's win streak stretches to six games

by Ron Knabenbauer @RonKnab / ColoradoAvalanche.com

Goaltender Jonathan Bernier was signed in the offseason to help provide support if Semyon Varlamov couldn't go, and he's filled in more than admirably in the Varlamov's absence. 

Bernier won his fifth consecutive game with a 27-save effort on Saturday night in the Colorado Avalanche's 4-1 victory at the Dallas Stars. The win tied Bernier's career long, as he has won five in a row two previous times, with his last coming March 18-28, 2017.
